I don't know if UFO secrecy is really for our own good or not. You kind of have to understand how the whole world works as a whole.
On one hand, imagine you're the guy who has access to alien technology, or technology which far surpasses public commercial technology. Let's say
you have access to a ship which can bend space-time and travel between stars and distances of light years practically. Are you going to share your
secret with the whole world? Really? Think about it for a second. It's hard to know unless you're in that position. But the more you keep it out of
the hands of others, the longer you hold that advantage over a large population of people to yourself. It's probably no idiot who is the one who
possesses this unique advantage in technology over the masses. It's probably someone who is well aware of the advantages they possess in technology.
I can imagine those in power get used to liking that power and want to keep that power.
Is this secrecy good for us? Is it bad for us? It would be easy to say, "Oh, if everyone had access to this technology, our world would be more
advanced, and it would be better." Well maybe when that day comes, it will be better for everybody. Until that time, I think we have to ultimately
admit our lack of understanding about how the whole world works as a whole - the whole universe as one contiguous system for that matter. Maybe it's
better in the sense of natural selection that the possessors of advanced technology attempt to maintain their selfish grips on those secrets. This
nature could be an inherent cog in the workings of our world. If we want to unearth these secrets, expose the individuals who possess this technology,
then maybe we should simply ask ourselves, "What can I do?" to reach these goals. After all, if it wasn't a dragon guarding the treasure, the
"treasure" wouldn't be so coveted, now would it?
Now, let's consider if this situation actually exists in reality somewhere. Do we believe that individuals somewhere have access to advanced
technology that the mainstream is unaware of? I think you'd have to be a fool to believe it would be otherwise. Now, is it in our best interests to
go about trying to uncover this technology for the rest of the world to benefit from, or at the minimum, just proving that the blueprints indeed even
exist? You have to consider what other members in this thread have already mentioned, the fact that our society in its development just is not ready
for public acknowledgement of extraterrestrials present on this planet, or anything related, such as galactic politics and whatnot. Now it is getting
there. The internet has made available to large groups of people roughly equal access to the collection of human knowledge, disseminating breaking
knowledge virtually immediately as it is known and discovered. The idea of extraterrestrials is not as far-fetched and denounced as it
once was in years past. We are getting there - but not there yet.
Governments are going to do everything in their power to divert attention from the fact that advanced technology not only exists, and not only
may be operated by more intelligent and advanced beings visiting this planet, but that it itself possesses some of this technology, if not simply in
the name of warfare security, i.e. concealing your most powerful weapons, artifacts, and capabilities. When an advanced flying saucer crashes to the
ground and the public finds it, you're damn right an order is going to come from above to refresh the analysis and conclusion as one of our weather
instruments. Things people don't know about scare them. Governments are comprised of humans just like you and I, and they are just as fearful about
the unknown. They, like anyone else, don't want you to see their fear, but it's real. It's not easy openly admitting to your people that the skies
are not under your full control. Not easy.
I don't know if UFO secrecy is for our own good or bad as much as UFO secrecy is directly related to human nature itself - the fact that there
will be secrecy when it comes to possession of advanced technology, the kinds of which may be tens, hundreds, thousands, hell who knows, millions
of years more advanced than our own. You can really argue either side of the issue in my mind on whether the secrecy is beneficial or detrimental, but
either way, at this point in time, secrecy is the name of the game when it comes to the real truth of the matter, and it's just going to take time,
development, and a copious amount of digging and prodding by adventurous, determined, and capable individuals for it to all come out from under the
table. In the meantime, let's just try to learn to take care of each other better, so that we might not destroy ourselves and instead, develop into
that mature, intelligent, sentient species which has readied itself and its collective consciousness as a whole for interstellar contact and
